bottle, someone left at house. Best before 03/28/13. ok aroma, bittersweet. citrus and pine. clean light brownish orange color, small head that faded quick, little lacing. bittersweet flavor. medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Good, kind of familiar, dulled as it warmed. might try to spot a fresher bottle one of these days. nothing bad, nothing great

Poured a clear copper color with a nice and thick eggshell colored head. Aroma is resin, floral, citrus, herbs, grass, and caramel. Taste is grapefruit, grass, pine, sweet malt, and a nice bitter finish. Really good stuff, especially for the price.

Superior IPA. One of the best Iíve had in awhile. Great balance of sweetness with a citrus and pine hoppiness. Jay brought this one back with him from Utah in spring, 2013.

Bottle. Pours literally the ideal colour for an ipa/ pale ale. beautiful copper with a tint of orange. decently thick one finger + head that lingers. aroma is citrus and pine with a soothing background of malty goodness. Hits all the right flavour notes for an IPA- piney, grass, citrus with a nice sweet base. good, balanced, interesting, delicious. Just the right amount of bitterness on the finish so you know they didnít skimp on the hops. One of the best IPAís Iíve had recently. Packs a punch at 7.3% abv- i thought that wasnít allowed in Utah........:) Really, really good.

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours an orange color with a slight copper tint. A distinct floral aroma. Taste is very floral and grassy. A bitter IPA aftertaste that didnít linger. Overall a simple IPA that surprises with a hint of citrus.

Thereís no secret about this beer. Itís pretty hoppy. that said, I am a big fan of ipas and this one does not seem to distinguish itself in any particular way.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottled 6/09/12. Enjoyed on IPA day! Pours orange with a small off-white meringue-y head. Citrus zest aroma with sugary orange, papaya, grapefruit rind, and pine. The flavor is sweet citrus and pine, bitter earthy notes of bark and dirt, with a bitter citrus pith finish. Verging on creamy, with a dry finish. Nice. [1125]
